  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Unauthorized use of Zahn-type violin for dispatchment of mother-in-law....
  • Commented on A Bird in Hand
    Minor typo find: first instance of "Witchita Taxonomics", I'm not sure if you want Wichita spelled as such; it's spelled differently further on. Other than that, omigod. Hahahaha. Two in the bush, indeed....
  • Commented on Making history personal
    Hotel Esmeralda in Paris is built in a 17th century store-front, for sleeping under. The Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi, 13th century for walking under. This was pre-1997 earthquake....
  • Commented on Blatant Advertising
    Happy Birthday! And beer money day....
  • Commented on A deceptively simple question
    I could spend a lot more time at the pub. Just short of the kind of time where I can't actually find the car again when the evening is wrapping up. Presumably this would allow for a lot less DUI...
  • Commented on A man walks into a bar
    Many thanks!...
  • Commented on A man walks into a bar
    Oh noes, Charlie Stross, uni-bomber. Hahaha. I read the first page at Tor and immediately went over to Subterranean and reserved a copy. The Laundry is so very fun. Which is something I never ever expected to type, not ever....
  • Commented on Tapeworm Logic
    Wouldn't that be a stupendous feat of worm engineering, gathering the statistical data needed to verify they are utterly coincidental!...
  • Commented on Tapeworm Logic
    I will wash my hands I will wash my hands oh dear gawd I will wash my hands. What happens when the universe washes its hands? Or, to be more precise, discovers signals trying to pierce the intestinal wall in...
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    Stina, I think this is a tremendous idea. Just. Oh my. This. Sorry to gush. I've got hunting buddies who took a crack a while ago at producing their own ammo. They gave up at doing so after a short...
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    I tend to wonder if our hang-up is based on lack of temporal depth, as the nation isn't that old. I mean, your apartment is almost as old as my state is...There's a need to imply legitimacy through having something...
  • Commented on The Algebraic Properties of Equality in SF
    If anything this post has challenged me to take an assessment of what I've read so far. I'm sorely lacking. I really enjoy Mo of Laundry. But really a character that comes to my mind immediately is Susan Richards, of...
  • Commented on Haunted
    I think I have a hard time separating suspense from horror. Hitchcock was great at suspense. King writing as Bachman is the same thing, for me at any rate. The Running Man short story had me on the edge of...
  • Commented on Always Look on the Bright Side of... SF
    I don't think it's alarming at all. I'd be more concerned if it hadn't changed over the years. The plots charted by SF&F give us insight into ourselves, and if there's any tool that's more widely available for being a...
  • Commented on Science & Technology, Working Together
    Ah, "recent" as in "publication history". How far back can the work be published to be considered recent. 2010? 2000? Thanks!...
  • Commented on Science & Technology, Working Together
    I'm still haunted by Geoff Ryman's Air. Is 2005 still considered recent? What's the cutoff line for recent these days?...
  • Commented on E Ticket*
    Interstellar Pig by William Sleator was my first palpable taste of suspense. Hitchhiker's Guide was the first book I laughed out loud at. My parents love mysteries, so there was lots of Christie and Stout lying about. But I really...
  • Commented on Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!
    In regards to the Fear of Other, it'd be nice if there was a smartphone app that could pick up on your own personal flight or fight responses. That would then text you concerning the situation. "What's going on here?...
  • Commented on The ticking clock, stopped
    Both the clock questions create giant singularities for me. For the first, there's the five years or so and the the big D and after that...? Whoosh. The same for the other. Five years being a young'n again would make...
  • Commented on The ticking clock
    I'd start a kickstarter campaign for publicly documenting every aspect of my affliction in the hopes that the data would help alieviate future suffering. Map my genome. Metricize my enviromental variables. All the good bioinfomatic vectors. Start a lifelog. Patent...
  • Commented on 2512
    Ghostbusters!...
  • Commented on Context is everything
    So, the last bit of Charlie's proposal has been bugging me, the "our shaved ape preoccupation with status and anthropocentricity, the idea that it's all about us. It isn't, ..." bit, because I'm wondering just what "it" is going to...
